Counterterrorism in Yemen After Saleh

My PolicyMic colleague Carl Conradi recently wrote how Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s departure would diminish the strength of Al Qaeda in Yemen. But regardless of whether the success of anti-governent protests strengthens or weakens Al Qaeda, the United States still faces the loss of a man with whom they’ve collaborated against terrorism for the past ten years. So I ask instead, “How will post-Saleh Yemen impact U.S. counterterrorism efforts?”
